We tried a few cafés for breakfast, but always returned to 'Cafe Fresq'. The staff were very helpful with the menu choices, and big smiles and friendly. The servings were late, loved the bacon & eggs & coffee. Prices reasonable & outdoor seating.

On our first day in Port Douglas we stopped in simply because we were passing and it was lunch time. This turned out to be a very lucky choice as the place is one of those little gems that you only find by accident.

Staff are great and very obliging in not sticking to set menu offerings and doing everything they could to give us what we wanted.

Food is fantastic, so much so that we made a point of dropping in there a few times while in Port Douglas, even if just to have a drink. They happily serve very good quality food, in quite generous proportions, and the variety of offerings is excellent.

Take the opportunity to order a milkshake. Took me back a few years as it is served in good old fashioned metal cups and is served absolutely full to the brim.

Location of terrific, right on McRossan Street, and is great to sit and watch the passing parade of people holidaying in Port Douglas.

A fantastic little gem of a cafe, great food and service and very good value as well.

Myself and my fiancé decided to have lunch here as the reviews online were good and it seemed very busy. My fiancé had the calamari and I had the chicken salad boy were we sorry a couple of hours after eating we were both violently ill and had fevers. My guess is they were not handling the food properly and it was a case of cross contamination. We were in bed at 4pm till the following day because we were so ill.

I had a delicious breakfast here that was a good size and very well priced. The coffee was well made. The staff were incredibly friendly and efficient. The cafe has outdoor seating under shade.
